The Ai Chronicles Cover Final

The A.I. Chronicles (Future Chronicles Book 2) edited by Samuel Peralta

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. Even today, machines that mimic human thinking surround us. As the intellectual feats of computing machines grow more and more astounding, will there be a day when their apparent intelligence approaches, or even surpasses, that of human beings? And what if these machines then become conscious, self-aware?

In this latest title in the acclaimed ‘Future Chronicles’ series of speculative fiction anthologies, thirteen authors confront the question of the Singularity: at and beyond that point of time when A.I. becomes more than simply a human construct. From first awareness to omniscience, these original short stories explore that territory where human intelligence comes face-to-face with what is either its greatest hope, or its greatest threat.

The A.I. Chronicles features stories by bestselling author David Simpson (the Post-Human series), Prix Aurora winner Julie Czerneda (In the Company of Others), plus eleven more of today’s top authors in speculative and science fiction.

“The best place to discover new SF authors, I think, is any of the anthologies coming from Samuel Peralta”
Hugh Howey, NY Times bestselling author of Wool

“A powerful new voice in speculative fiction”
— Nick Webb, USA Today bestselling author of the Legacy Fleet trilogy
